R&D Survey

The South African National Survey on Research and Experimental Development is a flagship annual project for CeSTII, which it performs on behalf of the South African Department of Science and Innovation (DSI). Each year the R&D Survey team reports the latest available data on R&D expenditure and performance across five sectors: higher education, science councils, government, business, and not-for-profit organisations. Statistics are used in the development of science policy to set government R&D priorities and funding levels, and for monitoring and benchmarking purposes.
